Enjoyable, even if the premise has become old-hat, 9 May 2001

This is one of the better of the 1940s era Mickey Mouse shorts and the typical Disney attention to detail is still there, although you can sense that some of the enthusiasm for short form cartoons is beginning to wane just the teensiest bit. The basic premise of the cartoon-feed something and it's yours whether you want it or not-is getting a bit stale, but here it's quite entertaining. This shows from time to time on The Ink and Paint Club. Well worth watching.
